Crocker Art Museum

The Crocker Art Museum was created to house the arts picked up by the Crocker family on a long trip through Europe in the 1870s with the goal to becoming the cultural hub of Sacramento.

Today's Crocker Art Museum is housed in a building that has two distinct wings: the Victorian house built in 1873, and the new Teal Pavilion, which opened in 2010. Known for its collection of California Impressionist art, German drawings and everything ranging from contemporary to antiquity, it is a must-see on a trip to Sacramento.

The Museum is open to the public Wednesday - Sunday from 10 a.m. -5 p.m. Advance registration is highly recommended. Face coverings are required for all guests over the age of 2.

For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the Crocker Art Museum website.
